Welsh metal-core rockers Bullet for My Valentine are returning to the U.S. for a second leg of shows from September 2-28. The tour’s first leg ran July 14 through August 16.

The quartet continues on its nearly two-year world tour supporting their sophomore release, “Scream Aim Fire,” which debuted in the U.S. at No. 4, and is up for Best Album in the Kerrang! Awards, scheduled to be handed out August 21 in London. The band is up for three other awards — Best British Band, Best Single (“Waking The Demon”), and Best Video (“Waking The Demon”). The album debuted in the U.S. at No. 4.

According to frontman Matt Tuck in a post on the band’s Web site, the 11-track record is “really melodic heavy metal…catchy, hooky choruses and full-on vocals with the music being very in-your-face and heavy… It’s a lot more up-tempo than ‘The Poison,’ a lot more aggressive.”

Following its second leg of U.S. dates, Bullet For My Valentine heads back overseas for a string of shows in the UK, Europe and Scandinavia from November 9 through December 13.
